We have just returned from 6 nights in Cyprus at October Half Term and can highly recommend it for some early Winter Sun.  Why? Well the main reason is that it can be sooooo easy!

1 Weather

The weather was amazing and perfect for kids. Not too hot that they will be bad tempered, but sunny enough that they can play in the pool all day.Whilst the pools might not be heated they are warm from the sun all year round so definitely warm enough. Perefecto.

2 Time Difference

The time difference is perfect: keep kids up later and they sleep later which means no problem when you return home.  We put ours to bed at 10pm being 8pm at home and then they slept until 8.45am, being 6.45am at home. Yes that’s right we actually got a lie in on holiday!

3 Flight Time

Yes the flight time is a little long at between 4-5 hours depending on air speed, but it isn’t too long. There aren’t really many other places you can fly to from the UK and get sun in that short time.  You can make it extra easy too by booking brilliant car hire in Cyprus, we can recommend Manos Car (very friendly service) and booking chauffuer parking at the airport we used Purple Parking this time round and it was all incredibly easy, even when I wrote down the wrong terminal!

4 Anglified

This is a strange thing to say from someone who likes experiencing different cultures so much, however I LOVE the fact that you can drive on the left.  It is so comforting for someone who isn’t that great at driving on the right, and it makes it very very easy!

5 Types of Accommodation

There is such a range of accommodation in Cyprus from 5* Hotels, to Villas, to 3* apartments, there really is such a range of choice and affordability! You can also check out some other exotic locations that won’t break the bank here!
